Adding a little spicy sausage to your scrambled eggs, helps add a little excitement to your breakfast. Try this great little recipe to spicy up your morning routine.

Ingredients

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Onions

  • 1/4 Pound Mexican Chorizo Sausage

  • 3 Tbsp Raisins, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes

  • 5 Eggs

  • Salt

  • 2-3 Tortillas

  • Cilantro, for garnish

Directions

  • Cook the onions: Heat a large skillet on medium high heat. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil or bacon fat in the pan. Add the chopped onions (optional) and cook until softened.
  • Add the chorizo and raisins: Once softened, move the onions to the side of the pan and add clumps of chorizo into the pan. Use a wooden spatula to break up the pieces of sausage. Add the raisins.
  • Stir until the sausage is cooked through, though not necessarily browned. If you are not using lean chorizo, drain the excess fat from the pan before proceeding.
  • Add the eggs: Crack the eggs one at a time, into the pan. Break the yolks and stir the eggs into the sausage. Add a light sprinkling of salt.
  • Stir constantly until the eggs begin to set, but are still moist. Remove from heat.
  • Serve immediately with a side of warmed corn tortillas and cilantro as a garnish.

Notes

  • If you are not using lean chorizo, you may want to cook the chorizo first, draining the excess fat, then remove to a plate while you cook the onions in the remaining fat. We usually cook with lean chorizo, so excess fat isn’t an issue.
